Little mittens for that little one who pulls on those heart strings with just one look. Just like my Grandma always made them – with string to keep them together, and cute little buttons to “pretty them up” a bit.

Difficulty: Avanced Beginner
Basic unisex pattern in sock weight yarn requires familiarity with working in the round with a small diameter, increases and decreases. If you’ve made socks, this will seem easy. If you haven’t, it might be a good place to start!

One size will fit most toddlers wearing approximately 2T-4T sizes. I’ve updated as of 11/19/2011 with a little more detail on how to size them a bit more.
